Nine’s Wide World of Sports will present a unique insight into the life of one of Australia’s greatest broadcasters and characters in Ray Warren: Calling Time later this month.

Nostalgic, funny and irreverent, this special tribute to his life relives the soundtrack to many of the most memorable moments in Australia’s sporting history and dives deeper into the world of the man affectionately known as Rabs.

From the way he prepared in his home office before calling some of the biggest moments in sports history to his upbringing in the regional New South Wales town of Junee, to the chemistry of how the commentary box worked behind the scenes – it’s all there in Ray Warren: Calling Time.

Hosted by James Bracey, a stellar cast of some of the biggest names in Australian sport as well as  Rabs’ colleagues share their experiences and never-before-heard stories of working and travelling with him over four decades of his broadcasting career.

The special will feature Ian ThorpePaul VautinPeter SterlingPhil Gould, Giaan Rooney, Bruce McAvaneyAndrew JohnsJohnathan ThurstonDavid GyngellBilly Birmingham (The 12th Man),Peter V’landys and many more personalities when it goes to air on Channel 9 in the build-up to the 2022 NRL Grand Final.

Nine Director of Sport, Brent Williams, said: “Ray Warren is without doubt one the greatest and most iconic sports broadcasters our country has ever seen – from the young boy calling marbles rolling down a slope to the legend providing the soundtrack to Origin’s most memorable moments, and everything in between. Calling Time is a celebration of Rabs’ incredible career and his remarkable journey to becoming the best ever.”

The NRL Grand Final broadcast is exclusive, live and free on Channel 9 on Sunday, October 2.
